Vectorized RandFill Logo

2014-09-09

While I’m (slowly) continuing to convert RandFill from Win32 to Qt, I’ve added the
logo icon to the main window and the executable today.

But since that is a simple image that I made with MS Paint quite a while ago and because I am not an graphics artist, it looks as ugly as it does; sorry 😛
Even worse: Up until now, the original image was available only as a 32×32 pixel bitmap.
And that looks really bad in a time of Retina-/HiDPI-/4k displays.

So I vectorized the old icon (thanks to Inkspace) and tried to tweak the SVG image a bit (as I said: not an artist). Then saved it as PNG files in several common resolutions (16, 24, 32, 48, 128, 256) and combined those to a single multi-page ICO file (thanks to Ico FX [v1.6.4-portable]).

Here’s the original logo:

And here’s a 256×256 pixel version, exported from the new vector format:
